To apply to have your modules included on the Clean Energy Council Approved Products List, ensure that your products meet the requirements and that you complete the following process.

Step 1

Ensure the product is tested and certified to the required Australian and/or IEC Standards by a suitably accredited testing laboratory

Module testing must be performed by a test laboratory approved to test PV modules to these standards under the IECEE scheme. The certificate must be issued by a national certifying body associated with that laboratory, who are accredited to certify PV module testing under the IECEE CB scheme. Module testing and certification is accepted only from the following organisations listed on the IECEE website.

Certificates must be issued after the date of joining the scheme, and an additional declaration is required if testing was done before the approval date.

The Clean Energy Council will only accept certificates where periodic factory inspections are carried out by the certifying body to ensure ongoing compliance with the international standards.

Enhanced Listings

If your modules are certified for a higher standard of quality or are certified for specific environments, they may be eligible to receive an Enhanced Listing. After ensuing that you have met all the requirements in the Enhanced Listings checklist, you can submit the details for consideration of an Enhanced Listing by email at the time of application. The Clean Energy Council will only provide an Enhanced Listing if it can be shown that all materials on the Construction Data Form are covered by the enhanced certification. No additional fee is charged for Enhanced Listings.

Step 2

Ensure you have at least one importer or local manufacturer of the product

The Clean Energy Council requires manufacturers to nominate all importers of their products. Importers are responsible for meeting the manufacturer warranty obligations in Australia.

Importers must keep a record of all serial numbers and make them available to the Clean Energy Council and Clean Energy Regulator on request.

Importers must be a legally identifiable Australian or New Zealand entity, holding an Australian Business Number (ABN) or a New Zealand Inland Revenue Department (IRD) number.

Step 3

Ensure you have the required documents

The following documents must be submitted with your application.

  • PDF copies of the compliance certificates.
  • Construction Data Form associated with the certificate.
  • ​Details of how the date and place of manufacture are traceable from the serial number.
  • Technical sales datasheet/brochure (including the model(s) of connectors that the panel will be supplied with in Australia – Terms such as 'MC4 compatible' are not accepted). All claims must be verifiable. If they do not apply to all bills of materials supplied to Australia, they must be marked ‘optional’ or ‘on demand’ or similar.
  • Installation manual (including requirements for mounting the panels with rail and clamp systems).
  • Representative module rating label.

Applications will be delayed if incomplete or incorrect information is supplied. Detailed information can be found in the terms and conditions and application checklist.

Step 4

Submit your application online

As part of the application, you must pay the application fee. Applications will not be assessed until the Clean Energy Council has received payment of this fee.
